Unfortunately, this appears to have inherited the usability issues from
and a new one comes up with the added support for firewalld:

IMHO, support for application profiles (#14) is essential for a usable 
firewall UI. (IMHO, it is the absolute minimum. For firewalld, you also need 
to handle the concept of zones sooner or later, see #16.)

A simpler way to create simple rules (only setting the incoming port, 
without needing the advanced settings) (#15) would also be helpful, though 
you may be able to get away without it if you address #14.
